SILVER LAKE — The motorcyclist who was killed Saturday in a collision on Sunset Boulevard was identified as 28-year-old Richard Dodds of Los Angeles, according to Kelli Blanchard, an investigator with the county coroner.
Dodds and a passenger were riding westbound on Sunset at about noon when the 71-year-old driver of a Toyota RAV4 heading eastbound turned left in front of them at Micheltorena Street, said Sgt. Rares Isai with the LAPD Central Traffic Division. The driver of the Toyota remained at the site of the crash.
Dodds was declared dead at the scene. His passenger, a 26-year-old female, was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
On Sunday, passersby stopped to look at a sidewalk memorial of flowers, candles and notes at the corner where the crash took place.
